Ideally, when you attend a live CLE activity, the sponsor of that activity will have received course accreditation from the WSBA and will submit your attendance within 30 days of the event's end date.
APR 11.6(a)(1) requires that the sponsor of each approved live program (or each live program for which approval is sought) must make available to each participating lawyer an MCLE Board attendance certification form. This form is to be completed by WSBA lawyers taking the course to show the actual time spent by each lawyer in active attendance. From these reports the sponsor will be able to report to the MCLE Board the correct attendance credit for each lawyer. Sponsors must submit attendance reports to the MCLE Board not later than 30 days after conclusion of the program.
For prerecorded A/V (self-study) programs, lawyers must report credits earned, and the sponsor should apply for accreditation. If the program has been approved, participating lawyers may simply add it to their roster and (a) indicate the course date(s) and (b) the number of credits earned.
One MCLE credit may be claimed for each 60 minutes of participation in an accredited activity. Time spent on course registration, introductions, breaks, and business meetings are not included in activity accreditation and may not be counted. Bar members are responsible for making appropriate adjustments to their records when the actual time spent in an accredited activity is less than the maximum approved credit-hours. Adjustments must also be made for late arrival, early departure or other periods of absence or non-participation. You can edit or delete any activity on your current reporting period roster by clicking on the hyperlink to the right of an activity.
Please note, your online CLE credit roster is provided only for your convenience and is not an official record. At the end of your reporting period you must certify your credits with the online or paper CLE Certification (C2) form to meet Supreme Court MCLE compliance requirements. A "Certificate of Attendance" or other sponsor-provided certification is not sufficient to receive course credit.
